Behavioural Optometry is more than just vision

Behavioural Optometry concerns itself with more than just the clarity of eyesight. It also tests a patient’s visual, visual motor and visual perceptual skills. While it is important to test your eyesight according to an eyechart, to use your eyes effectively, you need to make sure both eyes work together effectively. When your eyes move and align, fix and focus in tandem, you’ll find your ability to both see and to comprehend is strengthened. These skills should be relatively instinctual, meaning more cognitive energy is freed up for learning.

A behavioural optometrist will take a holistic approach and consider remedying of any eyesight difficulties, while looking at prevention of disease, protection of your visual organ and enhance your visual system in order to improve visual performance.
